       libgphoto2(3) is a cross-platform digital  camera  library,  and  gpho-
       to2(1) is a command-line client for it.

       Where an option takes a range of files, thumbnails, or other data, they
       are numbered beginning at 1. A range is a comma-separated list of  num-
       bers  or spans (‘‘first-last’’). Ranges are XOR (exclusive or), so that
       ‘‘1-5,3,7’’ is equivalent to ‘‘1,2,4,5,7’’.

              Turn on debugging.

       -q, --quiet
              Quiet output (default=verbose).

       -v, --version
              Display version and exit.

       -h, --help
              Display a short usage message.

              List supported camera models.

              List supported port devices.

              Send file to stdout.

              Print filesize before data.

              List auto-detected cameras and the ports to which they are  con-

       --port PATH
              Specify  port  device.  The --list-ports prints a list of valid,
              usable ports. In case of multiple USB cameras, the --auto-detect
              shows you the specific port each camera is connected to.

       --speed SPEED
              Specify serial transfer speed.

       --camera MODEL
              Specify camera model. The --list-cameras option prints a list of
              all explicitly supported cameras.

              Most model names contain spaces: remember to enclose the name in
              quotes so that the shell knows it is one parameter. For example:
              --camera "Kodak DC240".

              Note that if you specify --camera, you must also specify --port.
              Otherwise the --camera option will be silently ignored.

       --filename FILENAME
              Specify  the  filename  to use when saving downloaded files. The
              --filename option accepts %a, %A, %b, %B, %d, %H,  %k,  %I,  %l,
              %j,  %m,  %M, %S, %y, %%, (see date(1)) and, in addition, %n for
              the number, %C for the filename suffix, and %f for the  filename
              without suffix.

       --usbid USBIDS
              (Expert  only) Override USB IDs.  USBIDSmust be of the form  De-
              tID to treat any USB device detected as DetectedVendorID:Detect-
              edProductID asTreatAsVendorID:TreatAsProductID instead. All  the
              VendorIDs and ProductIDs should be hexadecimal numbers beginning
              in C notation, i.e. beginning with ’0x’.

              Example: --usbid 0x4a9:0x306b=0x4a9:0x306c

       -a, --abilities
              Display camera abilities.

       -f, --folder FOLDER
              Specify camera folder (default="/").

       --filename FILENAME
              Specify the filename to use when saving  downloaded  files.  The
              --filename  option  accepts  %a, %A, %b, %B, %d, %H, %k, %I, %l,
              %j, %m, %M, %S, %y, %%, (see date(1)) and, in addition,  %n  for
              the  number, %C for the filename suffix, and %f for the filename
              without suffix.

       -R, --recurse
              Recursion (default for download).

              No recursion (default for deletion).

       -l, --list-folders
              List folders in folder.

       -L, --list-files
              List files in folder.

       -r, --rmdir NAME
              Remove a directory.

       -n, --num-files
              Display number of files.

       -p, --get-file RANGE
              Get files given in range.

       -P, --get-all-files
              Get all files from folder.

              Overwrite files without asking.

       --new  Only get not already downloaded files. This  option  depends  on
              camera  support of flagging already downloaded images and is not
              available for all drivers.

       -d, --delete-files RANGE
